Could have been torched. Seems to be evenly burning from side to side and top to bottom. I could believe anything in Washington state.

I don't think it's any of those anti-gov militia types that did this. I read elsewhere that it was indeed started by wildfire. The foreground isn't torched yet when video was shot but it all has been now.

LOL at the Gender reveal party comment

One of the wildfires was started by a pyrotechnic device at a gender reveal party. I don't recall which, it could have been one of the California fires. I seem to recall the same thing happened last year as well.
